Chevrolet heavily revamped the Equinox last year and all those changes – the powerful V-6, the roomy interior and pleasant riding experience – carry over into the 2014 model year. Automotive vehicle valuation site Kelley Blue Book writes: “If [you] want a comfortable family/gear hauler that’s larger than other compact crossover SUVs but small enough to be at ease in parking lots, the Equinox is worth a look.”
Edmunds, an automotive information provider, agrees. “The 2014 Chevy Equinox is a worthy choice for a small crossover SUV, particularly if you’re interested in one with a nice highway ride and an available V6 engine.”
That V-6, which is available on the mid-level LT and top-of-the-line LTZ, pumps out 301-horsepower and 272 lb.-ft. of torque. Transmission is a six-speed automatic. The EPA rates Equinox with this setup 17 mpg city, 24 mpg highway and 20 mpg combined.* Models equipped with the available all-wheel drive (AWD) rate 16 mpg city, 23 mpg highway and 19 mpg combined.
The 2.4-liter four-cylinder that is found under the hood of the base LS and is the standard engine for the LT and LTZ carries on in 2014. Also mated to a six-speed automatic, such crossovers get 22 mpg in city driving, 32 mpg on the highway and 26 mpg in combined driving with FWD. These figures drop slightly with AWD.
The Chevrolet Equinox, as a family hauler, is well-equipped in safety. Standard equipment includes six standard air bags; anti-lock disc brakes with electronic brake force distribution; electronic stability and traction controls; and OnStar, General Motor’s telematics system. A backup camera is standard on LT and LTZ models. The NHTSA gave the Equinox four out of five stars in overall safety while the non-profit IIHS ranked it “Good” in its moderate overlap front and side crashes; head restraints and seats; and roof strength tests. A lane departure warning system and rear parking sensors are also offered to shoppers.
Notable creature comforts found on the Chevy Equinox include a six-speaker audio system and satellite radio (LS); heated mirrors (LT) and leather (LTZ). Additional features and equipment can be had through option packages: Driver Convenience, Power Convenience and Safety. Interested parties should speak to their friendly local Chevrolet dealer for more details on the 2014 Chevrolet Equinox.
